Tech lovers, stay tuned an interesting page is about to begin! Have you ever heard of the Mobile World Congress? If yes, did you even know that the world’s largest mobile gathering takes place every year in Europe and specifically in Barcelona?! In Europe!!!

Personally, I was surprised when I first learned about it last year, while visiting Barcelona…The city was full of banners spread all over the center and it was the first time ever that I ‘ve noticed Barcelona being that crowded.

So what’s all the fuss about!?

Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, organised by the GSMA and held in the Mobile World Capital, Barcelona. Save the date since this year the event is gonna take place on the 26th of February till the first of March 2018.
